    Vasquez rocks park is a pretty fascinating formation of sedimentary rocks that are sitting at ~45degs. Lots of caves and interesting formations. One negative is that this place gets busy and there are lots of horse trails which means horse crap all over the wider trails. Also the site is a maze of small trails going every possible way ....and thay are not marked, so without a gps or phone app it's easy to just wander around on trails without knowing where you are going or if you are on a trail that will actually get you somewhere. Overall pretty cool but bring lots of water as it gets hot with no shade, and bring your gps or phone for a map of the trail maze.

    Very nice hike and well maintained trails, however, it can get very busy and very crowded there. Go early and take the Moonridge trail either out to the falls or back to make it a nice loop and also avoid people.

    Instead of heading all the way to the north tip, we cut down to Two Harbors and packed kayaks for a 2 day 1 night return to Avalon. Stayed at Goat Harbor and it is by far the best boat in site. We have done this trip (TCT + kayaking) a few times and always had a great experience. Must book boat in campsites ahead of time as well as kayaks as the company which operates out of Descanso Beach will drop them off at two harbors and take any extra gear back to Avalon via the kayak delivery truck.

    James Eklund reviewed Placerita Canyon to Waterfall Trail

    over 1 year ago

    Just completed 3/26/17. Parts of this trail have washed away especially around the creek and there are a few fences with signs saying the trail is closed, which made the hike less crowded. The waterfall at the end of the trail is ok but don't expect anything amazing, instead just enjoy the moderate to easy hike, green meadows, trees, and multiple small stream/river crossings. Brought the dog and she loved the water.
